Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Lets Be United And Help Others

Many student have longed for going to school to acquire knowledge and even continue with their studies but under some circumstances their dreams have not come true.When some see how some studies are being paid for school fees and they take them for granted,they will be so peeved because it will be so sad when somebody offers to pay your school fees you should try your est to do something to lure that person and continue with you paying school fees.This problem of lazyness has hindered people but for now some of who are being helped are working hard since they know that hard work pays and also you shall reap what you sow.When students are in school they should lialise so that they can help each other. There are people in this country who long to be helped and remember rich people should always help the poor students who are ready to work hard.''HARD WORK PAYS''. Those who are willing to help others should always be leverage so that they should help other.
